Each year, between 300,000-400,000 deaths due to cardiac arrests occur in the United States outside of a hospital. By taking one of our CPR classes in Idaho, Red Cross experts can help prepare you to provide care during times of crisis - and help you save the life of someone you love. Classes are available in person, online, and via Simulation Learning, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session.

If you've already taken CPR classes in Idaho and earned your certification, you can use refresher materials from the Red Cross to help maintain your skills. And although it might sound like an unnecessary step, according to a research review conducted by the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, CPR skill retention begins to decline within a few months of training - and less than half of course participants can pass a skills test one year later. So, in order to help you keep your skills sharp, we've developed a number of refresher materials that take just a few short minutes to complete online, but can make all the difference when help is needed.
Whether you need full, OSHA-compliant certification or simply want to gain the skills and confidence necessary to help save a life, we offer a variety of Idaho AED classes that can help you get the training you need. With courses available during the day, evening, and on weekends, and available online, in person, or via our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session, you can earn your Idaho AED certification, and learn how to provide critical care during sudden cardiac arrest.
Note: If you need OSHA-compliant certification, only in-person and Simulation Learning courses satisfy the requirements for full certification.
An automated external defibrillator, or AED, works by checking the heart's rhythm, then delivering an electric shock to the heart of someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. AEDs are the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest. To learn how to use this important device, which is now readily available in office buildings, shopping centers, airports, sports stadiums, and more, sign up for AED classes in Idaho from the American Red Cross.
First Aid Training
The American Red Cross offers first aid classes in Idaho that can help you prepare for the unexpected. Our training includes the latest evidence-based procedures so you can provide care to adults, children, and infants during times of need. Classes include instruction on caring for others during asthma attacks, anaphylaxis, choking, external bleeding, and heart attacks, as well as caring for those with burns, plus a wide range of other emergencies.
Note: Some classes focus only on adult care, so please be aware when scheduling your first aid training in Idaho.
By empowering you to provide care for infants, children and adults, you can truly be prepared to help - no matter who needs your assistance. That's why, in Idaho, pediatric first aid is included along with our adult care instructions. After all, small bodies with developing bones and organs do tend to be more delicate than those of adults, so precautions and/or actions will, and should, vary based on the age of the person who needs your assistance.
